Throughout the month of August, Little Yelpers across the Chicagoland area fastened their seat belts and set out on the second annual Little Yelpers Club Field Trip to explore family-friendly businesses on Chicago's North Shore. The free event series kicked off with a pancake art party at the new home of the Evanston Art Center in collaboration with Babycakes Gourmet Pancakes and Lux Blox, the hottest new toy soon to hit the market. Next it was all aboard to Gather Play Space for cupcake art and storytelling with The Storybook Mom, then off to FlavorPot cooking school in The Glen for pretzel twisting! The following Sunday families gathered for a painting party at Bottle & Bottega in Evanston, and our final family event wrapped up at Heller Nature Center on a Friday night with rainforest-themed indoor crafts and activities followed by a viewing of Fern Gully under the stars. But that's not all…we also teamed up with Little Beans Evanston for a mini back-to-school fundraiser to help raise funds and collect school supplies for the Infant Welfare Society Of Evanston. Thanks to all who participated. Have a great school year, and until next summer's field trip, SYOY (See You On Yelp)!
